It didn’t came out of the blue the fact that BaH won’t return in the contest in 2018. A simple announcement on twitter just confirmed the sad news. BaH returned at the costest after three years of abstention, in 2016 in Stockholm,  but the country failed to take the golden ticket for the Grand Final.

In 2017, BaH withdrew again from the contest due to overwhelming economic problems. The broadcaster of the country almost collapsed due to financial problems. 

BaH is participating in the contest since 1993 and the best position in the Final show was in 2006 in Athens represented by Hari Mata Hari and his song Lejla (3rd place – 229 points).
